Age may only be a number, but it doesn’t mean you have to look as old as your years. Over time, your skin can start to sag, and wrinkles form. Suddenly, you look older than you feel. It’s when Dr. Pearl at Chatham Plastic Surgery comes in. Dr. Pearl is a board-certified plastic surgeon in Savannah, Georgia, and is ready to help you look your best.
Are You a Good Candidate for a Facelift?
The ideal candidates for a facelift are men and women who are in general good health, and whose faces and necks have begun to sag or droop. Jowls along a once youthful jawline and sagging skin on the neck are the two areas that a facelift improves most.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Pearl will ask you a few questions.
- Are you in good health?
- Do your expectations match what is possible with a facelift procedure?
Dr. Pearl will also discuss the two types of facelift procedures we offer, a full or mini facelift.
Is a Full or Mini Facelift Best for You?
Working with Dr. Zarem, Dr. Pearl has revolutionized the traditional full facelift procedure. It addresses the changes to underlying muscle and soft tissue while minimizing downtime and creating a more natural result. These changes resuspend the deeper structures of the face without the increased risk of a deep plane facelift. In addition, soft tissue glue is used to minimize swelling and bruising and eliminate the need for drains.
Clients can choose from different options based on the severity of aging and changes on the face and neck. These different facelift options can be combined with upper and lower eyelid surgeries, brow lifts, and even surgeries on the body at times.
A mini facelift avoids making incisions at the neck or chin. It also minimizes scars around your ears, while still lifting the area around your neck and jawline.
